Publisher's Summary

Within Cole Matthews lies anger, rage, and hate. Cole has been stealing and fighting for years. This time he caught Peter Driscal in the parking lot and smashed his head against the sidewalk. Now, Peter may have permanent brain damage - and Cole is in the biggest trouble of his life.

Cole receives a one-year banishment to a remote Alaskan island. There, he is mauled by a mysterious white bear of Native American legend. Hideously injured, Cole waits for death. His thoughts shift from anger to humility. To survive, he must stop blaming others and take responsibility for his life. Rescuers arrive to save Cole's body, but it is the attack of the Spirit Bear that may save his soul.

    I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.

    "Phenominal Book!"

    This is a young adult book that I read with my class, however, I have listened to it several times on my own. It is appealing to all ages, especially if you are curious about bullys and juvenile delinquents and why they act the way they do. It is touching and spiritual on many levels. It helps us to understand why children act out, what makes them appear to be so angry, and what experiences might change them. I highly recommend this book for pre-teens/teens and adults alike.

    "a heart for kids in trouble"

    This book was introduced to me by a teen patient in my pediatrics office as mandatory reading in his high school English class and the concept of tribal justice dispatching a teen to an island to fend for himself was fascinating. But I could not put it down. It is a story of redemption at a gut wrenching level of self discovery.

    "Favorite book from childhood"

    I read this book for the first time in middle school. I love how the Narrator voiced the characters almost exactly as I did when I was younger. An amazing and inspiring story.
